Customizing the advance boot screen?
I would like to know how I would customize or organize the advanced boot screen of fog by Linux dist. and or tool to be used rather than having them show up in a long list.
If someone could maybe post some directions or give a brief tutorial it would be most appreciated…
@dureal99d Really nice, thank you!!
But, it is a great example of how to implement an ipxe advanced menu.
Will do im currently customizing it to include every free utility and version of windows & Linux i can find or think of. I have also included a couple more sub menus.
When done i will post the completed working code in hopes it can help someone else.
@dureal99d that is an insanely complex advanced menu. But, it is a great example of how to implement an ipxe advanced menu.
Let us know how it goes as well as (if you can) post the efforts of your labor to help the next person with their advanced menu build out.
Here is a great starter script for the advanced menu.
You can also create more parent menu items (in addition to the advanced menu) and use the same concept as above. For example on the same level as the advanced menu, you can create an entry for WinOS setup pxe boot another one for disk utilities and a third for debug utilities. They don’t all have to be in one advanced menu.
You have to remember that you must be on the 1.3.0-rcX build (1.2.0 will not have the utiltiies to manage the iPXE menus from the GUI) and your paste into the parameters field must be a complete iPXE menu, so you must learn iPXE menu design (or find one you can hack up to your needs /like above/. http://ipxe.org/examples
